I know we've discussed writing DVDs on Suns in the past, so I thought
I'd re-post exciting bit of news for readers who may not have heard of a
little ol' thing called the Sun Managers List.

> Alan West requested that I repost this note as a summary.
> I asked for help with an issue of writing a DVD with cdrw some
> weeks ago. The configuration I am using is an Ultra 10 workstation
> running Solaris 9. The DVD drive is a Plextor PX-708A.
> Several responders suggested using cdrecord-prodvd. This works but it
> is licensed for non-commercial use only and no support is available.
> I opened a case with Sun and after a couple of weeks of running
> diagnostic tests and sending results to Sun engineering I was sent a
> new binary for cdrw.  The new binary fixes the issues the problem I
> was having with recording DVD+R with cdrw.
> The binary will be released as a patch in about 1 1/2 months. The
> bugid no. is 5039437 for those who have a Sunsolve account.  The
> release of the patch with the new binary can be tracked via this
> bug ID.
